  1. I THINK WB HOME VIDEO NEEDS TO GO BACK TO THE GOLDEN SERIES CUZ IT REPESENTED A BROADER RANGE OF FILMS AS WELL AS AND LOTS OF EXTRAS! PLEASE GO BACK AND REVIVE THE SERIES OR AT LEAST COME UP WITH A SIMILAR SERIES FOR US HARDCORE FANS!!!

  2. WB has finally figured out what the public wants: Bugs Bunny cartoons that aired on the Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Show on Saturday mornings for decades. This disc delivers just that, with none of the older “filler” cartoons that sank the Golden Collections. Friz Freleng, Robert McKimson, and Chuck Jones are all well-represented on this disc, so get ready to relive those Saturday Morning memories and laugh ’til you drop.

    IN RESPONSE TO THE CONTENT:

    I’m forty-one. The Bugs cartoons that my friends and I loved best were the early Freleng, Avery, and Clampett ones – a few Jones and McKimson too – but not this super-late, flavorless junk. After sleep-overs we would groan Saturday mornings about this stuff and cheer when the early and funny ones came on. Often we could tell just by the opening whether it was time to change the channel for ten minutes or not.

    It’s horribly tiresome that whenever Bugs appears on dvd in the last ten years the majority of the discs are crammed with this late material and not the work 1940-1947.

    I won’t be purchasing this one but I hope Warners will collect the early best of America’s favorite bunny on a future volume.

  4. I Am Glad To See That Warner Bros. Hasn’t Shut Us Out Completely. I Will Be Buying This, But Still Feel Stiffed By WB For Not Completing The Golden Collections. It Was My Understanding That When WB First Announced The Golden Collections, Is That It Was Supposed To Be A Ten Year Run, One Collection A Year For Ten Years. And At The End Of The Ten Years, You Would Have Amassed The Entire Catalog Of Cartoons. Also The Reason For It Being Once A Year For Ten Years, Was To Give WB The Time To Clean And Remaster The Originals From The Vaults Of The U.C.L.A. Film Library And To Spread The Cartoons Out Over The Ten Years So That There Was A Good Amount Of “The Best” Cartoons Released Each Year So That The Casual Collector Would Need To Buy Each Collection In Order To Have All Of The Greatest WB Cartoons. If I Am In Error On This, Feel Free To Let Me Know. My Goal Was To Have The Entire WB Catalog. I Was And Still Am Interested In Getting The Rest Of The WB Catalog That Were Not Released And To Be On Collections 7-10. If This Is The Start Of The Rest Of Them, Then I’ll Be Buying Them.

    I agree with the other reviewers lamenting the lack of pre-1950 cartoons. However, as none of these cartoons have appeared on previous collections, I think it’s good that at the very least, WB isn’t asking us to buy the same thing again. And again! (Look! Finally! A collection WITHOUT “Baton Bunny!” That’s cause for celebration right there!)

    That said, some things I’m looking forward to about this collection:

    1) Yosemite Sam and Tasmanian Devil are all over this collection. All of the pre-1950 YS cartoons are on previous collections, and Taz didn’t come along until the mid-50’s. I, for one, am thankful to have all of them in one collection. (“From Hare to Heir” is the one where Sam has to be nice or forfeit 1,000,000 pounds; tell me you don’t giggle remembering Sam crashing down the stairs in the knight-suit after taking a swing at Bugs!)

    2) Some of those later-era cartoons may be funnier than you remember. “The Million Hare” from 1963 is the one with Bugs and Daffy racing to the TV studio to win a million bucks. (“I wonder if that silly duck will remember he can fly?” {{{CRASH}}} “Guess not.”) “Lighter than Hare” is the one where Sam is a space alien.

    (All of that said, I recognize that this has the potential to be another case of “Wow, that wasn’t as funny as I remember it.” This is what keeps me from giving it five stars. For now.)

    3) “Bushy Hare.” Has that been on any collection EVER? DVD or VHS?

    All I know is I’m eagerly awaiting August 10, when I can hopefully add the fifth star! Hopefully, this will be the beginning of a series of discs showcasing characters or eras or themes that haven’t been touched on in previous issues.
